Changing jdbc driver classpath in Websphere Administrative console

Some background to the problem:
When I attempt to start my Application server (WAS 4.0.5), using the administrative console, I receive the following error:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/microsoft/jdbcx/base/BaseXADataSource

I have a jdbc resource for SQL Server, which currently has a class path pointing to one of a number of .jars required for SQL server.

The problem:
I need to change this classpath to point to either:
- all of the required jars, individully
- the directory containing the .jars

However when I try to 'uninstall' the current jar in the classpath, I get this error:
com.ibm.ejs.sm.exception.JDBCDriverInActiveUseException

I have stopped both the Application Server and the Server Group, unintalled all applications deployed on the AppServer, and even stopped and restarted the node. But I am still getting this error!  
What could possibly be using this driver, and how do I change this classpath? Is there a way to do this via the comand line, or in a configuration file somewhere?

Cheers,
Nathaniel Ramm

Either put the jars in the /usr/WebSphere/AppServer/lib/app directory, or reference each zip and jar directly by adding them individually to the classpath of your application server.

... try doing a ps -elf | grep java to see if there are any processes still using your database drivers.

Thanks - I believe this just worked the next time I revisited it...
Whatever process had been still using the database drivers had terminated, for whatever reason...!?
